On September 30, our #HelloHyde campaign celebrated the fortieth anniversary of the Hyde Amendment, which has saved the lives of over 2 million children born through the Medicaid program. We educated tens of thousands of people about the life-saving power of the Hyde Amendment and highlighted the faces and stories of Medicaid kids. We built an alliance of pro-life organizations that will continue to put Medicaid kids first as the Hyde Amendment comes under attack by the radical abortion lobby.
Last week, we caught the attention of the left-leaning news outlet Slate, which featured Secular Pro-Life in a fantastic article about the Millennial generation of pro-life advocates. We are building on the work of pro-life pioneers, incorporating new ideas, and busting stereotypes. Young people are increasingly liberal on "social issues" like marriage, but we aren't budging on abortion. We recognize that the right to life for all ages is a fundamental human rights issue, and we're not going anywhere.
And this weekend, we're off to Austin for the Life/Peace/Justice conference, where pro-life advocates focused on abortion, the death penalty, suicide prevention, etc. will network and learn from one another.
Our busy schedule doesn't end there. January's anniversary of Roe v. Wade is just around the corner. As always, we will be at the March for Life in D.C., the Walk for Life West Coast in San Francisco, and speak at the west coast and east coast Students for Life of America conferences corresponding to each. And in 2017, for the first time, we will be at the March for Life expo, which is attended by pro-lifers of all ages, from all over the country. We're so excited to help them make the secular case for life in their communities!
All of this costs money. The #HelloHyde campaign in particular was expensive, as we used paid advertising to reach people with our campaign videos. That was 100% worth it, but our bank account needs to be replenished as we gear up for January.
If you're able, please donate to Secular Pro-Life. We greatly appreciate your generosity.
Thank you for your continued support of our life-saving mission. Together, we will change hearts and minds until the day abortion is unthinkable for all.
